Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Victoria Guest House occupies a superb location on the south-eastern approach to Penrith from the A66. A lovely double fronted Victorian building of immense charm and character, the house is reputed to have originally been built as a farm house and with its well-proportioned rooms, was easily transformed in later years to provide excellent guest accommodation. With its five en suite letting bedrooms, combined with its most convenient location allows it to trade with a superb blend of commercial, local and tourist trade throughout the year.

Penrith is a delightful picturesque market town located on the north-eastern fringe of the Lake District and lying at the junction of the M6 Motorway and the A66 Trans-Pennine route. It is the commercial hub of the Eden Valley and indeed travellers from Roman times to the days of the construction of the M6 Motorway have enjoyed hospitality in the area. However, it is probably best known as ''The Gateway to The Lakes'' with Ullswater only four miles away. Indeed the Lake District, being the best known tourist destination in the country, attracts many thousands of visitors throughout an ever-increasing tourist season.

Victoria Guest House was acquired by the present owners in 2005 and during their ownership they have continually upgraded, improved and re-decorated this lovely guest house as well as adding a delightful conservatory to the rear and a modern website. The business is currently operated successfully on a second income basis under management but with increasing pressure in their time, the owners are now looking to sell this successful and well-managed business.
